Ortus is the second Jazz/Rock album by acclaimed bass guitar player Jon von Boehm.
It is a trio project that features Michael Green on drums and John Gallo on guitar. Special guests Vuyani Wakaba (bass) and Jessie Rose Brassfield (vocals) are featured on two tracks.
What Jon says about Ortus:
“My musical journey has kept me busy, but somewhere in there I managed to write songs I am proud of. The record is inspired by my love for astronomy. If you pay attention, you’ll get a chuckle out of the song titles. It is also fitting that the Great American Eclipse occurred in Nashville during the recording process. The cover photo was taken during the eclipse. It captures the vibe of the record perfectly. This is a trio project, unlike my self-titled first record featuring 12 talented musicians from around the world. From a creative stand point, I wanted to take the less is more approach this time around. It brings more out of the musicians. You want that with the cats I have on Ortus, trust me.”
